High-end MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips are “well into development and testing”

Mark Gurman from Bloomberg reports that the new MacBook Pro models with M2 Pro and M2 Max silicon have progressed to advanced stages of development and testing which increases the possibility of their launch this year.

At the WWDC 2022 event, Apple updated the 13-inch MacBook Pro (base model) with an M2 chip after two years. However, sources claim that the high-end 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will be updated with even faster Apple Silicon only after a year.

New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and Max chips could launch in late 2022

In his latest newsletter, Gurman wrote that the new Pro notebooks are  “well into development and testing”. He said that it is likely that the tech giant will unveil the machines “as early as fall” if the supply chain disruptions do not cause a delay.

Previously, DigiTimes reported that mass production of new MacBook Pro models would begin soon and tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that mass production would start in the fourth quarter of this year.

It is also speculated that the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips will be built on TSMC’s advanced 3nm process. Even if the M2 Pro and M2 Max Apple Silicon are built on an advanced 5nm process like the M2 chip, they are likely to feature more CPU and GPU core than the M1 Pro and M2 Pro Max variants.

Apple is also expected to launch a new Mac mini with M2 Pro and Mac Pro with M2 Extreme chip in 2023. Currently, the tech giant sells Mac mini with an M1 chip and has yet to upgrade Mac Pro to Apple Silicon.
